I travel to Mexico a lot and this place was truly amazing. Perfect location, rooms, beach and restaurant. It's special and rare. The staff was wonderful. The price was great. Best place in Holbox and maybe the entire north Yucatan.

Words don't really do Mawimbi justice - the setting is unforgettable, and the attention to architectural detail is without compare. Service was outstanding and we felt like we were invited guests to an exclusive secret hideaway, While maybe not for everyone due to its intimate

This hotel is an hidden gem! The hotel is made of a few bungalows built using locally sourced materials. You can tell that the owners put a lot of thought and care in the design of the rooms and of all the other structures. The bungalows are built on the beach: a sandy path

The restaurant is open to the pubic, and from what I remember, people outside the hotel can use the beach chairs IF there are already enough chairs for the hotel guests (which I MUCH appreciated, as a guest!)

I do not know how they wash it. We used the water for shower, cleaning the teeth’s. We ate fruits and had ice cubes in the drinks. Within the 9 nights there we had no problems. Everything is really clean. So we highly recommend it and you can feel save.

We used only cash. I really dont know IF they accept creditcard. Since We heard it is only one mashine to take out cash We made sure to bring. At the hotel We could change US dollar. It is a very quiet but wonderful island with lots of Good restaurants and this was a favorite,, Going back next spring!!

There are really good restaurants in Holbox that I think that you should have the opportunity to try them, you won't regret it. Consider that some restaurants do not accept credit card payments. A regular beer costs more or less 35 pesos and a craft beer around 85.-pesos. a Glass of wine from 90.-pesos.
